Crystals for Karmic Healing: An Interview with Nicholas Pearson
Today, I am so excited to be interviewing once again, the amazing Nicholas Pearson. I'm talking to Nicholas today about a book we actually haven't gotten to discuss very much yet, "Crystals for Karmic Healing."
Nicholas, welcome. How are you?
Nicholas Pearson: I'm excellent. Thank you so much for having me on your new podcast. I'm really looking forward to this.
Ashley: Well, thanks for being here. Just for those people who are listening who maybe haven't been fortunate enough to listen in on one of our interviews before...
Can you give us a quick background of how you got started working with crystals and about your journey as an author and a speaker?
Nicholas: So, I started really young, as I think many of us do, picking up rocks everywhere I went. My grandfather really saw this love I had for all things stone and he gave me my first piece of quartz. It's thanks to him I have this addiction to this day. When I was in high school, I was in a really rigorous kind of academic program. So, I was really into the science and culture and history and everything that was surrounding rocks. That was not a far cry from delving into spirituality, which already interested me.
I think, when it came to the world of crystals and crystal healing and the folklore around it, that was the perfect marriage of both of these avenues of interests for me. So by the time I was a senior in high school, I started teaching workshops. It eventually got to the point where I wrote a book. Now a few more books and here I am!
Ashley: We were just talking before we started recording and you are on, is it book number six right now?
Nicholas: I am. I'm writing book number six and book number five is going to come out next year. We're just starting to shape up all the details. It's actually the first time I've gotten to really talk publicly about book five which is called "Stones of the Goddess: Crystals for the Divine Feminine."
Ashley: I cannot wait for that. I think that it is so needed in the world right now. You always bring just the best, freshest perspectives to everything. I think it does have to do with that love of science and history that you weave into the pages. You tell this amazing story. I always feel like I'm in this amazing classroom when I read through one of your books. It's so in-depth but in a way that is totally approachable and understandable. You have a way of providing so much clarity on a subject. I'm really excited.
I have to ask, what prompted this topic of the divine feminine for you?
Nicholas: Well, it started as one of these little tiny ideas in the back of my head that just wouldn't be quiet. I have always loved earth-based religions and spirituality, and the idea of the sort of imbalance we have in the world between the divine masculine and divine feminine is getting more and more apparent with each passing moment. When we really connect to crystals they are part and parcel of Mother Earth herself.
When we pick up our favorite piece of quartz or put on our favorite strand of beads or beautifully faceted diamonds, these are the bones of the Earth Mother.
So the bones of the goddess who gave birth to everything that we have, everything that has material form. So, it just seemed like a really natural way to try to usher in a little bit more awareness of the divine feminine. Even more, to elevate it so we can really reclaim that power for healing worldwide today.
Ashley: Well, thank you so much for bringing this book into being. I do think it's really forming now and I can't wait for its release. So you have to keep us all posted. But today, like I mentioned, I wanted to dive into your book "Crystals for Karmic Healing." This one is getting a reputation in the crystal healing community for being one of those must have books. I really do think it's going to become a classic...
